These specially commissioned full-colour illustrations show a variety of familiar situations and activities that depend on the awareness of acceptable social behaviour for everyone present to feel at ease
Some cards show a good understanding of social skills, while others show a poor understanding by one or more people.
On each card, the detailed illustrations show the venue, the activity taking place, the particular behaviour of one or more people, and the effect of this behaviour on others.
The cards also clearly show non-verbal communication such as posture, gesture, facial expression, respecting personal space and appearance.
